Feb. 14, 2016: Three versions of the classic In-N-Out Burger signs in Baldwin Park, California.
In-N-Out Burger signs cluster the intersection of Francisco Avenue and Interstate 10. But only one is for a working fast-food business. The others are retro signs.
On left is sign for new In-N-Out Burger on south side of Interstate 10 at Francisquito Avenue. A classic retro sign sits in middle, used for years for old In-N-Out Burger location on north side of freeway. On right is the sign for full size replica of 1948 In-N-Out Burger now at the location.
Harry and Esther Snyder founded In-N-Out Burger in 1948 at the Baldwin Park location. The chain, still family owned, has expanded to 305 locations in six states.
The original location now has a working restaurant, 1948 replica, company store and distribution center. In-N-Out Burger's headquarters are in Irvine, California.
The 1948 In-N-Out Burger replica is opened Thursday - Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. I arrived on a recent Sunday at 2:15 p.m. and took these photos through the fence.
My thoughts on images past and present.
